Rex Kern was an All-Ohio athlete in three sports at four positions: basketball, baseball, and both quarterback and safety in football. His dream was to play varsity basketball and football at Ohio State. He did become Ohio State’s starting quarterback his sophomore year, but due to surgeries was unable to continue his OSU basketball career. After graduation, he played for the Baltimore Colts and the Buffalo Bills, starting at cornerback, a new position, and safety during his four NFL seasons. In 2007, Rex was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. When injuries ended his football career, his goal was to work toward becoming the Athletic Director at Ohio State. Despite his Ph.D. in athletic administration, athletic accomplishments, and off-season experience, that door was closed. Fortunately, lifelong mentor and friend Jack Havens led Rex to success in a start-up company, acquisitions, banking, and investments. Rex wanted a memoir to recognize and honor dozens of his past mentors, as well as guide and inform future generations of the Kern family. He was convinced to open that book to friends, Buckeye fans, and anyone who might enjoy an All-American story.
